Newham College has unveiled a new rainbow logo to mark LGBT month.

It comes as the college was ranked 63 in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, which publishes its top 100 employers which work to ensure lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) colleagues can be themselves in the workplac.

College principal and chief executive Paul Stephens said: “We’re thrilled to have been ranked so highly, as the College is entirely dedicated to maintaining equality within its workforce and also among its students.

“After all, love makes the world go round; respect keeps it on its axis. People who can be themselves fully achieve great things!”

College staff and students were joined by Cllrs Steve Brayshaw and Tahmina Rahman on Thursday for the unveiling of the new logo, which will be used throughout February.
